A Break with May Roses

May has been insane. I’m talking too much time in front of the computer, too little sleep, and no time for the things that nourish my soul. Therefore, I am taking a much needed break from the madness to share some rose photographs for a not-so-wordless Wednesday.

Since my son’s school couldn’t hold the annual Field Day activities, his teachers crafted an in-your-own-neighborhood scavenger hunt that served multiple purposes–socially distant fun in the sun, exercise, and healthy competition. While my not-so-little one hunted for items on the list, I captured the pretty hot pink knock out roses at the entrance of our neighborhood.

A few days later, my guys and I jumped into the car and took a drive to visit each of the aunts and deliver socially distant hugs. At Auntie Linda’s, I was able to give my camera a workout with the roses growing beautifully outside her town house. My favorite lens is on its last leg–it’s cracked–but it did okay.

After photographing everything green in our front- and backyards over the last few weeks, I desperately needed another color. What a gift the roses were!

And…whew! Thanks to this shift in focus, I feel so much better! Hopefully, I’ll see you tomorrow for #ThursdayTreeLove.

    I legit thought it was still April and was about to correct you about starting your post with May. Time really has no meaning in these here COVID-19 times.

    Glad you got a break from the computer! Beautiful pictures.

    You’re so right, Chandra! It is that shift in focus that worked for you, right! Just what we all need at the moment. I couldn’t agree more. I’ve done an online workshop in bringing in some much-needed positive energy into myself and it has helped me feel so much lighter and happier.

    Loved your rose blooms! Those are some very soothing colours, just the kind my mom used to grow at home while we were growing up. Funny how small things we see trigger so many memories.
    Happy #ww, dear Chandra! Wishing you a wonderful week ahead. 🙂

    Best wishes,

      I had to take another little break today to do my #treelove post. It seems I’ll never finish all this work! [Insert scream]. Thanks for sharing your memory and for the encouragement.
